Anyways, I captured more amazing moments today that I would like to share.
Caught this Great Blue Heron scratching its face. I thought is was a pretty comical moment, especially with the raised head feathers.
I finally have some decent photos of hummingbirds to show for! This one came quite close to me, but I was still too excited about seeing them that I kept fumbling to set the right mode on the camera and a focused image. Next time, next time. I believe this is a female Rufous Hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus) because it has a green back and lacks the iridescent throat of a male. Please correct me if I am wrong.
Then I saw a Killdeer at the same location as yesterday. Now, I am more certain that there is its nest now. I wish it good luck because a predator (Mink) was observed (not by me) just last week near that location.
And, my favorite photo of the day. American Bittern (Botaurus lentiginosus)! It's just such a interesting and fierce-looking bird. I wish the water surface is higher so I can capture a better reflection of it, but I will take whatever I can get. Beautiful bird.
